Many of our projects are renovations and we are known for creative solutions that repurpose old buildings. We’re experienced with developing phased construction plans that maintain stringent environmental conditions for owner-occupied areas.
Main Classroom Building Rehabilitation West Virginia University, Parkersburg
Design consultant responsible for conceiving solutions and developing preliminary designs that addressed chronic structural failures. Developed cost effective strategies to resolve two separate issues. The first was to dry expansive clays to limit differential movement and to replace the front masonry façade with a modular glass curtainwall that absorbs any remaining movement. The second was to add exterior wind braces and conceal them in iconic façade elements and a new stair tower.
